It’s been over a year since Kane Brown released his Mixtape, Vol 1 EP, and he hasn’t released a full album project since Experience in November 2018 duet with Chris Young, “Famous Friends”.
Additionally, the singer has big plans for the launch of his next album, although it’s not yet clear when that project will arrive.
“I’ll say I literally pushed it away the other day. I’m not going to say when, but I pushed my album away,” Brown told show host Kelleigh Bannen on a new episode. from Apple Music. Country radio today. “But I think I’m going to release songs, hopefully once every two months before that.”
Part of the reason he pushed the album’s release date back, Brown explains, is that he experimented with different styles of music in his current batch of songs.
“None of them sound the same, which is another thing I thought about,” he says. “I tried to go the old school way, but I got too old school … I like different music.”
For example, he has a song called “The Devil Don’t Even Bother”, which starts off as a return to the Charlie Daniels Band classic “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, but has a twist: “[It] It sounds great… I would say probably, like, the ’80s, maybe, for the verses, but when you get to the chorus, it completely turns into modern day country, ”he says.
“And then I have another song that I struggle with with the demo route or with the one that [producer] Dann Huff did. Which, he killed it, but I made him make a great Motown out of it. So it’s just great Motown, a bunch of ropes, “Brown continues.” It’s like, ‘Is this too much? Or do I go to a demo that’s basically simple Kane Brown? ‘”
Then there’s a song that Brown says is closest to the release date, a track titled “Go Around” which marks a new stylistic turn for the singer.
“This will probably be my next outing,” he hints, “And it’s very, very rock… very heavy guitars, but with a little bit of swag. So it’s, I don’t know. It’s everywhere.”
More recently, Brown released his “One Mississippi” filled with violins. It’s his current single on country radio.
